Something very important often becomes a personal thing, something that you don’t just mention. At least I don’t. This has hurt me often. I have taken a very long time to call myself an artist. And you know, I don’t know why.
It was only today when I was casually talking to Joelle at the table that I realized what I have been all this time and why I have both traveled and mingled with genius. I am also a composer. I am a brilliant composer. Certainly my music is every where and as I age, it gets taken more and more seriously.
It has many times been interpreted as classical jazz now (and with amazing results indeed) and I myself have translated it into full classical scores with a full classical symphony orchestra. Also, if you want to find gifted musicians there are almost none better than royalty. Since they are always there with the trouble you can, in a pinch, to divert the tension, convince them to sort out brilliant music. It is no less than the best that the world has to offer. Really.
